The manga is a hilarious comedy that shows the daily lives of various characters from the game in a modern day high school setting. You can get a sneak peek of the manga on the official website.

The manga follows Alisaie, a high school student who goes to Eorzea Academy, an exclusive school that was created by merging two rival schools: the Academy of Light and the Academy of Darkness. But even though they merged, the students from both sides still clash with each other all the time, which is causing a lot of trouble for headmistress Tataru.

In order to improve the spirit and harmony within the school, Tataru decides to organize various activities and competitions for the students to take part in. Along with her twin brother Alphinaud and their friends, Alisaie faces all sorts of challenges and adventures both in and out of school. And of course, they also have to deal with their enemies from the Class of Darkness.

In summary, Final Fantasy XIV’s Eorzea Academy is an absolutely delightful manga that offers a fresh and funny perspective on the game’s world and characters. It is a “must read” for fans of FFXIV who want to see their favorite heroes, and villains, in a totally new light.

Personally, I am super excited to read all the chapters of this manga, and I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds! If you’re not sure whether you should read it or not, don’t hesitate to check out the Free preview here.
